7:05 am

7:06 am
precaution. it's not raining right now, but this has been very heavy rain and still heavy rain as the storm moves north. that is the major threat from flooding across much of texas later today. erica? >> don, thanks. don teague in south padre island this morning. now for the economy and politics. with unemployment at 9.6% and the midterm elections just two months away, president obama is out and about this week promoting new ideas to get the economy moving again. cbs news senior white house correspondent bill plante has the latest on that. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the stalled economy has fueled voter discontent. so the president will be on the campaign trail for much of the next two months trying to turn things around. >> i am going to keep fighting every single day, every single hour, every single minute to turn this economy around and put people back to work and renew
7:07 am
the american dream. not just for your family, not just for all our family, but for future generations. >> reporter: pumped up in full campaign mode before a crowd of union members in milwaukee, mr. obama celebrated his administration's accomplishmentses and announced a new project to repair the nation's infrastructure. the proposal would rebuild 150,000 miles of roads, construct 4,000 miles of rail, and reskrukt h. construct # 50 miles of run way as well as modernizing the air traffic control system. administration officials insist this isn't another stimulus, but the president says it will be a big boost to the economy. >> this will not only create jobs immediately, it's also going to make our economy hum over the long haul. >> reporter: john boehner shot back in a statement saying we don't need more government stimulus spending. we need to end washington democrats out of control spending spree, stop their tax hikes and create jobs.
7:08 am
administration officials propose to pay for the infrastructure rebuilding by eliminating some tax breaks for oil and gas production. and the president will soon propose another tax break for small business. he wants to eliminate taxes on capital investment for the coming year until the end of 2011. >> all right, bill plante at the white house, thank you. here now to take a closer look at the president's plans is rebecca jarvis and in washington john dickerson. good morning to you both. let's go through these two plans. the $50 billion sort of stimulus junior, takes were -- >> infrastructure. >> this is supposed to be kind of a seed really for a much larger idea of dreaddressing infrastructure needs. >> in the first stim husband, which was about $800 billion, some of the stimulus needs were
7:09 am
supposed to be addressed. and if you look at those numbers, that original stimulus dollars that original $800 billion or so, that created according to the congressional budget office which is a nonpartisan group, that reallied 1 hpt 4 to 3.3 million jobs. so if you think about this infrastructure plan which is $50 billion, if it's an apples to apples comparison, it's 1/16 of the size of the original plan, could create about 88,000 to 206,000 jobs in a year. >> although it is being welcomed in some corners and being shunned in other corners. let's get john tickdickerson so board here. what wases resounding sound from republican? >> a huge raspberry from all republican corners to the president's proposal. it's almost as if these press releases are pre-written. they see this as a last minute
7:10 am
desperate attempt by the governme president. >> and let talk about this other -- >> the $200 billion. >> which is kind of putting a different template on on the way businesses sort of write down their own investment in their business. >> as bill plante mentioned, it's an original for two years businesses won't have to wait to write down their investments in new things. instead, they'll get to take off their book, they'll get to at that time deductionses in taxes. it's a $200 billion plan. and some economists estimate it will help grow business ininvestment by 5% to 10%, which could an boost to some businesses. >> and we haven't heard so much reaction to that yet, but sort of overall, almost anything that the white house talks about say over the last couple months or so has been met with a raspberry, i suppose we should assume this will be met with the same kind of reaction? >> it will be. and the problem is therd's got to get these things through congress and particularly in the
7:11 am
in the, that requires republican's votes and the president's allies in the senate say that isn't going to happen. so st then can the president take it on the stump and say i'm trying to give republicans the things that they want and they're still saying no and that will be his message for the next two months. >> that ael enends up being the question. is there any chance any of this stuff will get support from republicans? >> no. and this may an tiny bit of support for this $30 billion small business bill because small business is something everybody loves. but in the end, the president's going to have to try to rally his troops around the idea that the republicans are really trying to block anything that's sensible. >> and all through this then, the bush tax cuts has become this sort of mantra of sorts that the republicans say do not touch this. do not touch this. p what's the news on that? >> this $200 billion tax credit for businesses thought the
7:12 am
country, some are viewing it as a potential alternative to the bush tax cuts. >> thanks very much for joining us and your insights this morning. we've got a lot of news to get to and jeff glor is standing by with the rest of the headlines. good morning, everyone. this morning a warning from the u.s. commander in afghanistan. plans by a florida pastor to burn copies of the koran could pose a danger to u.s. troops. cbs news correspondent mandy clark is in kabul this morning with more on that. mandy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yes, u.s. military officials say they do not want the florida based church protest to go ahead because it will put american lives at risk. those serving their country in afghanistan. chanting death to america, protesters alleyed outside a kabul mosque yesterday condemning the u.s. church's plans to burn their holy book.

now try new honey vanilla creme. coffee-mate. from nestle. in "moneywatch," taking money out of your 401(k). the number of workers who have borrowed from their retirement accounts reached a ten year high this year and the record number took what is known as a hardship withdrawal. early show oig financial adviser ray martin is here to tell us why it's not the best move. until we started seeing these numbers come out, i'd heard of a hone, but i'd never heard of a hardship withdrawal. what is that? >> this is a very special type of withdrawal. it's not a loan there your 401(k), but an actual withdrawal, only allowed in special circumstances. and you can only take these when you're working for the employer that sponsors the 401(k) plan. and these can be taxable and have penalties. >> so they're taxable, up to a 10% penalty, as well.
8:11 am
>> that's right. there are numerous down sides. but first who can actually take these, these are employees who have a hardship situation and it's immediate and heavy. and they can only satisfy that by taking the money from the 401(k). so they have on to prove that and the circumstances are like paying unreimbursed medical experiences, college education and tuition expenses. >> that's considered a hardship expense. >> that's considered a hardship here. or to prevent foreclosure on or eviction from your home on your primary residence and those are actual hardships. >> and you have to lay all that out. so you'll have to tell your employer, whoever handles your 401(k), this is what's happening. >> here are the down sides of taking a hardship withdrawal. first, the amount you take out is taxable as income. the second down side is that a 10 percent penalty will apply if you're under the age of 59 1/2. most who take them are between 35 and 55 years old.
8:12 am
and you're proceed hib bitted from making contributions for six months after you take the withdrawal. >> so you can't put more money aside for six months. >> and you can't put the money back in that you took out. firmly reduces the amount in your 405 01(k). and you have to provide a detailed statement to your employer. and that with be awkwand you c . a lot of down sides. >> what are alternatives out this if you really need cash? >> if you work for your employer that has a 401(k) plan and they offer a loan, while i don't hike loans, that's a better alternative than a hardship because the amount you borrow is not taxable as income and there are no 10% penalties. and you can stretch out the payments over five years or even longer. and still contribute. but if you heave the employer, the amount taken out as a loan can have taxes and penalties and
8:13 am
that's a down side there. and if you're really in a true hardship situation, having another loan payment to make -- >> probably not the best option. another option is rolling maybe it over to an i.r.a.? >> they're much more friendly than 401(k)s. so if you don't work for them employer, roll it over to an i.r.a. there are nine circumstances where you can avoid the 10% penalty. withdrawals are taxable as income, but you can avoid the penalty if you need the money for payment of medical insurance premiums, unreimbursed medical experiences, or education and tuition fees and costs. even the purchase of a home. >> so those are things to keep in mind. even after hearing all of this, hearing the down sides to it, is there ever a situation where you would say to someone, yes, this is a good it time for you to, in fact, do that hardship withdrawal from your 401(k)? >> rarely. i'm getting e-mails from folks that are saying, look, i had to take a withdrawal from my
8:14 am
401(k), then i lost my job and now i'm in bankruptcy, can i avoid the taxes. i.r.a.s and 401(k)s are protected assets. if you think you're in a serious hardship situation, don't at that time withdrawal. okay? instead get on with that process. or take a withdrawal from a roth i.r.a. if you have that money there. but most people in a hardship don't have those options. >> and you do need that money later on. ray, always such great advice. thank you. for more of ray's visitor if you have a question for lray, just logon to cbs money watch doum. imagine you're 16 years old alone at sea for 210 days. and it was your own idea. you'll meet the australian teen who set sail. she'll tell us all about it after this. diabetes testing? it's all

8:20 am
everything. >> yeah, trailing ash behind the others. i didn't like getting wet, didn't like heights. kind of the last person you'd imagine to sit you down and say i'm going to sale other than and i go around the world. and i had to tell myself if you're going to sail around the world, you'll have to toughen up a bit. >> i sail a little bit and the idea of it scares me silly. going around below africa with seas as tall as buildings. >> yeah, i suppose call me crazy, but i had quite a few years to get my head around this and it just kept building up and kept asking myself could you do this. what would you do in that situation. and i wanted to make it as safe as possible and then get out there and give it a go. >> you know this is very controversial because younger
8:21 am
and younger people are trying to do different kinds of feats all the time and people are saying the parents are crazy, the kids are irresponsible. and within your own household, how do you answer that? >> definitely, i mean, look, sailing around the world is a bit scary and dangerous thing to be doing and for those people who is pretty much everyone who didn't understand the preparation, the team of experienced people around me, the reason why mom and dad were letting me go, it must have sounded down right crazy. and you can understand that. but mom and dad like i said were not crazy, they let me go for a reason because we'd done everything possible to make it -- >> as safe as possible. including a boat that would right itself. because it tipped how many times? >> six knock downs. that's when the poet's turned completely upside down. >> and enough air tight compartments in a sailboat like that that it will eventually right itself. >> it items itself quite quickly. you just hang on until that
8:22 am
happens. a you have tough little boat. >> and you are out there all by yourself. did you think you would go crazy? >> i always talk to myself, so nothing new there. >> so you're your own best company? >> i don't know what that says about me, whether a good or bad thing, but it's amazing what you get used to. i had a lot of amazing technology so i was able to keep in touch with the family. >> so you complete the squourn any and you return to sydney harbor and there are tens of thousands of people out to greet you. every network this australia broadcast this for hours. what was it like to be embraced like that? >> completely overwhelming. here i am just spent 210 days out there by myself and there's loot of empty ocean. i think i saw land three times not counting return and healeav
